Stoked!!! When he and Gore where together last year they were KILLING teams inside, outside! And we were owning the clock. And Hunter can run inside the T's very well as well (never drops a pass; great blitz pickup; trusted by the coaches) and scraps out those extra yards like Gore does at the end of his runs. He has VERY deceptive speed...he looks like he's even, right next to a defender and then he cuts and is gone! If he is back anywhere close to 100% defenses are going to hate us! He is one of the most explosive players on our team...running him out of the Q-formation (coupled with Gore) is going to be an absolute nightmare for DC's.

Hunter is a MUCH better receiving outlet than James (right now) and no need to rest Gore with Hunter. Both Hunter and Gore will now be running out of the Q-formation together more often than not. And with James added to the mix and his experience in our offense, it should be quite a weapon at every facet.
